Wine of the month – DA LUCA

Da_Luca_01

We are delighted to be offering a range of super-premium Italian wines from Da Luca alongside our regular wine list. As you may know we take our wines very seriously, offering some superb New World wines alongside classic French, and even an award-winning dessert wine.

Da Luca’s fresh and peachy Prosecco (£24.95) has been a firm favourite on the menu and we were so impressed by Da Luca’s aromatic Pinot Grigio and rich, brooding Primotivo that they are here to stay …at least for the next few months. In our own words the Pinot Grigio is an aromatic white which has hints of rose petals and pink grapefruit and the Primitivo,  is a dark red bursting with flavours of black cherry and cinnamon.

At only £20 per bottle these are excellent on the palate and the pocket!

Introducing evening specials menus

In addition to our fabulous new summer menu the chefs at Branksome Beach will be busy creating specials for our evening dining service. Each Thursday we will be bringing you a different weekly menu, featuring seasonal fish and seafood as the stars of the show; from mussels and lobster to whole fish and tiger prawns.
